I love springtime. Maybe I love autumn more, but there is something to be said for springtime as after winter hibernation when nature claims the barren and recently frozen landscape. Setting a spring tablescape for a luncheon is a wonderful way to celebrate the season and welcome friends and let them revel in the joy of the coming season, too! The color scheme for this is primarily lavender and white, I like the soft colors, but you could . You could easily create a similar look in a variety of colors.
I first shared this spring table setting back in 2018, but it is continually one of readers’ favorites. I thought it was time to share it again. This seems just perfect for the wonderful month of May, when the world starts coming to life and showing all of the beautiful colors that nature brings us. No matter if you have a garden full of blooming flowers, or you buy yourself some blooms, enjoy this time of year! Although I incorporated lavender wisteria along with the white wisteria, this might be a stunning table for a wedding or bridal shower with all white flowers.
The big impact of this beautiful tablescape is of course the floral arrangement displayed over the table. The center of the table is kept simple with four flower pots with faux boxwood planted in them.

The place settings are simple white plates set upon hydrangea petal placemats and are topped with hydrangea decorated salad plates. Can you believe these salad plates are melamine? They are making so many gorgeous dishes out of melamine that can be used safely outdoors! These place settings would make a beautiful Easter table with the soft color palette.
I wanted the beautiful wisteria that hung down from my chandelier to be the showstopper for this tablescape. Therefore, I kept the centerpiece for this table very simple. I wanted to continue the garden theme, so simple pots of faux boxwood, were all the tabletop needed!
The overhead shot of a tablescape is always a great way to show off the entire look and style of the table in one shot. Isn’t this dreamy? It is said for we table stylists, that the climb is always worth the shot! I love to use fresh flowers, but this design really called for artificial blooms.
Napkin rings were also kept simple, but so in tune with the pretty garden theme. Lavender linen napkins were tucked right into the watering cans. Sweet little watering can napkin rings were just the ticket for this inspiring spring tablescape. If you can’t source the watering can napkin rings
My husband and I finally found this chandelier at a little shop in Hilton Head, South Carolina after a three year search. I had no idea I would enjoy styling it as much as I have. It is just perfect for so many creative styling ideas. The whole look is magical and very garden-like. With warmer weather around the corner, I might try to set a similar table outdoors.
I considered using a table runner, but felt that a more simple table with the wood finish made this seem a little more like it was out in the garden among the flowers.
When I spotted this gorgeous artificial wisteria at Michael’s I knew I was going to use it somewhere! When I started adding to my chandelier, I soon found myself heading back to buy even more! This is a combination of sprays of wisteria and little bushes of shorter pieces. It looks so amazing, I am wondering how long I can leave it up there before it gets weird.
